You're just babbling about labels without examining any of the underlying assumptions.

For starters "capitalism" is NOT a form of government at all . . . it's part of an economic typology invented by Karl Marx. It specifically describes the relationship between the state and the economy from a "class" perspective.

What is it *specifically* that bothers you anyway?

"Money"? That's been around for millenia, long before so-called "capitalism."

"War mongering?" Again, predates "capitalism" by millenia.

"America?" Not synonymous with capitalism in the first place. You're probably mostly talking about the current president and his policies.

"Unfairness?" Who ever said life was fair? Particularly, was it any more "fair" in the age of lords and peasants? If you say "feudalism and capitalism are the same thing", then back of the class for you.

Marx defined "capitalism" (a word he invented) in terms of precisely how it wasn't "feudalism."
